The art gallery is a good as any in the city. So, if perusing art galleries is your thing, don’t pass up Tohono Chul Park.

At 50 acres, Tohono Chul Park might seem on the small side, but it packs a punch larger than its size would suggest. Surrounded by bustling city in every direction, the park's lush desert setting is an excellent introduction to the Sonoran Desert. In addition, there are demonstration gardens, a children's garden, an art gallery, two gift shops and an excellent tea room that serves breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea. There are daily tours as well, making this oasis is a must-do.
